Today’s the day! Nights of Azure, the newest original real-time action RPG title from Gust and Koei Tecmo is out today in America. I’ve been waiting for this one for a long time, having listened to the music and looking at the gorgeous concept artwork. Koei Tecmo has posted a new launch trailer, and a set of new screenshots to feast your eyes on. Here’s the press release straight from them:


KOEI TECMO AMERICA LAUNCHES ANTICIPATED NEW IP FROM GUST, NIGHTS OF AZURE

Creators of ‘Atelier’ Series and Producer Keisuke Kikuchi Present America with a Dark, Demon-centric Adventure, Now Available Exclusively for PlayStation®4

Burlingame, Calif.—March 29, 2016—KOEI TECMO America today announced the western release of Nights of Azure, a brand new RPG adventure and IP from the development studio behind the long-running Atelier series, GUST. Known in Japan as Yoru no Nai Kuni, Nights of Azure is now available exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. To mark the occasion, KOEI TECMO has unveiled a brand new launch trailer, which can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/aMUPw2EznYc

Under the direction of producer Keisuke Kikuchi (Fatal Frame, Deception IV), Nights of Azure marks a new, darker direction for GUST while maintaining many of the gameplay elements adored by dedicated fans of the studio. Unlike previous GUST titles, however, the protagonist has a very active role in the game’s real-time battle system.

Few leave their homes after nightfall in the kingdom of Ruswal, let alone have the strength and skill to take on the powerful azure-blooded demons that plague the uncharted island. One of the best among these brave few is Arnice, a beautiful knight of great skill and power sworn to protect humanity and defend the priestess Lilysse—her best friend. As she grows in power, Arnice can summon creatures known as Servan to assist her in battle as well as transform into a demon herself in order to carry out her mission.

Despite her strength, Arnice soon discovers that the solution to the island’s problems might not be as simple as defeating enemies in battle. Nights of Azure is a tragic tale of two friends faced with impossible decisions that will test their loyalty to their quest and to each other.

    Hey oprainfall, I have a suggestion, in addition to posting affiliate links to games after your posts, please also include affiliate links to psn cards (us, hk, jp, etc..) from play-asia. This is because a lot of gamers are now going all digital, oh and keep up the good work as always!

    Just a couple of more days to wait in Europe. This and Trillion will satisfy my action and strategy game fix respectively.
